#8 RE:birth by @jasonseife was collected by @_888_ for $89,455

Edition 1 of 1
This work is my first ever mint. For this piece i took a smaller composition from one of my larger hand painted designs and rendered the image digitally. Inspired by the ancient meaning of birds in carpet imagery, which are said to be representative of fertility and new life. I chose to model and animate the birds evolving from 2d to 3d and wandering above and beyond the painting. Conceptually representative of this new chapter of further exploration in my artistic career. — Sound Design by Simon Oscroft

#5 Machine Hallucinations – ISS Dreams – A 1/5+2AP by @refikanadol was collected by @_888_ for $109,494

Machine Hallucinations – ISS Dreams – A 1/5+2AP
Edition 1 of 1
Refik Anadol’s most recent synesthetic reality experiments on dreams and hallucinations reveal new connections between visual narrative, archival instinct, and collective consciousness. He focuses on latent cinematic experiences derived from representations of photographic memories as they are re-imagined by machine intelligence. Transforming a vast data set from the visual archives of International Space Station (ISS) into a dynamic data painting, this new iteration of Anadol explores artificial intelligence’s capacity to reach its own subconscious and offers an avant- garde form of cartographic aesthetics. ISS Dreams utilizes over 1.2 million images captured from the International Space Station, along with additional satellite imagery of Earth’s topology. Each version of ISS Dreams is derived from a different generative adversarial network (GAN) latent walk, interpolating between different landscapes and features of Earth. While the paintings’ intricate and abstracted layers of machine- generated dreams allude to a connection with a cosmos of unimaginable vast data, its natural pigments trigger a sense of belonging to the earth through an immersive experience. Artwork comes with a physical custom media server.

#4 Out of the Blue by @reisingerandres was collected by @_888_ for $118,301

Out of the Blue
Edition 1 of 1
I can see my hands on it. I can remember the feeling of getting my finger tips sticked to a polished surface. I can imagine the smell of the materials getting hotter by the heating lamp. It looks so real, it looks as you have already been touching it, using it or selling it, but don’t. These are digital. Out of the Blue is a short film directed by Andrés Reisinger that talks about the feeling, the impression, the smell that digital can exude.

#3 The Process by @slimesunday was collected by @_888_ for $120,526

The Process
Edition 1 of 1
A visual process from start to finish accompanied by original music from 3LAU.

#2 GΞNΞSIS by @dondiablo was collected by @3fmusic for $188,101

GΞNΞSIS by Don Diablo
Edition 1 of 1
For my GΞNΞSIS (1 of 1) piece I wanted to create something truly unique. This NFT is a magical combination of three elements: an unreleased song + a holographic synthesizer…and it comes with a physical hand built hologram cabinet + cartridge to display the art in a truly unique way in your living room. I started working on this particular song at the beginning of my career in 2001. Since then I have continued working on it every single year. I must have spent over 250 hours in total on the song and never found the right purpose or timing to share it with the world, up until now. The animation of the hologram synthesizer is based on the very first keyboard I bought as a kid, to make things truly full circle. The idea for the hexagon hologram cabinet (HEXAGRAM) and the cartridge derives from my love for both Star Wars as well as old school Nintendo gaming consoles. My genesis piece is nostalgia mixed with my vision for the future of digital art and music.

#1 Mars House by @kristakim was collected by @artoninternet for $512,712
